MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Memphis made entrepreneur, Moziah Bridges, is in the spotlight once again, this time for a national commercial.
It has been ten tears since Moziah Bridges launched his custom bowtie business Mo’s Bows. The 19-year-old from Memphis has been featured in national commercials.
This year he is in a campaign for web hosting company GoDaddy. “I flew out to California and I got to meet so many people and make so many great experiences. All of the necessary precautions were taken while filming so that I was safe and so that others were safe as well,” Bridges said about the filming experience.
The campaign is called “Make a Different Future”. “It was just great to be able to inspire and be able to have my face on a national campaign and inspire younger kids that look just like me,” he said.
Bridges added he has also had to adapt the products he offers because of the pandemic. “It was pretty hard for me because everyone is wearing bow ties when they’re going to a public event. So, when people aren’t really going to those public events it’s kind of like, ‘When do I wear my bowtie now?’ So, I decided to create masks that we have now.”
Adapting is just one of several skills Bridges has learned over the years to run his business, but there is one that he finds to be the most important.
“I would just say be willing to listen and be willing to learn,” he said, “I will also tell anyone who wants to start a business to figure out what you like doing and not only find out how you can make money doing that but also find out how you can help others by doing that.”
